Our commitment at Liston College stems from the privilege of our responsibility.  


Growing boys into the Liston Man is a statement we take seriously.  If the value statements below resonate with your own aspirations for your son, then we welcome your enrolment enquiry.  Our purpose for existing is to turn these words into reality for parents who seek something different from secular society’s values and norms. 


Our commitment is authentic as we strive to make young men of authenticity - authentic in faith, character and aspiration. 


Two hundred years ago, Edmund Rice, a visionary young Irishman was captured with a spirit of commitment to educate young men in service, humility and excellence. This inspiration is the cornerstone of our school values and ethos. 


The Liston College graduate will be countercultural against society’s norms. He will stare challenges in the face with resilience and excitement. His character and faith journey will give the necessary experiences to be a man of depth and compassion, resolve, excellence and humility – the type of well-rounded man who will make a difference with their difference. 


For boys, community is oxygen and your sons will find at Liston College that community is cherished – the strength of it, the wholeness of it, and the blessings that comes with it.
